7:02 am
trial. demanding an l.a. jury. from california a relaxing day at the pool turned into terror when a bear decided to drop by. >> all that -- >> and he caught it! unbelievable unbelievable! >> to "duck dynasty." what exploded the show? >> people like ducks i guess. >> and all that matters. >> counselled an entire nation making house calls through the television. joyce brothers died. 85 years old. >> on "cbs this morning." the irs apologized. now is to take the right lesson. >> wait a minute. i didn't realize apologies were sufficient in irs related issues. >> this morning's eye opener presented by prudential. welcome to "cbs this
7:03 am
morning." good morning norah. >> good morning, charlie. >> a lot of news this morning. >> new information about the internal revenue service targeting conservative groups. president obama blasting those involved. steven miller is admitting mistakes were made. >> on friday he will be questioned by a house committee in congress. among those under scrutiny for what he didn't tell lawmakers, nancy cordes on capitol hill. good morning. >> good morning, norah and charlie. lawmakers are furious, particularly republicans who repeatedly asked the irs about reports that tea party groups were targeted and were always told it wasn't happening. the house weighs and means committee began asking the irs about reports that the tea party was being targeted and were told it wasn't happening. they rebuffed questions and insisting that decisions were
7:04 am
not influenced by political considerations. in may 2012 two months after the commissioner said this to the house ways and means committee. >> absolutely no targeting. >> reporter: his deputy steven miller, briefed by investigators who told him s targeted groups that had words like tea party, patriots and government spending in their title. miller, the acting commissioner did not acknowledge errors when asked about them at a hearing that summer or in a letter to congress in september. in fact, irs officials might never have admitted the mistakes if the treasury department had not investigated the claims at the request of congress. the damaging report expected to be released this week. president obama weighed in on the controversy monday saying any personnel who violated the rules should be punished. >> if you have the irs operating in anything less than a neutral and nonpartisan way, that is
7:05 am
outrageous, it is contrary to our traditions and people have to be held accountable and it has to be fixeded. i have no patient with it. i will not tolerate it. >> reporter: acting commissioner is doing some damage control. he said in part mistakes were made, no way in due to political or partisan motivation. we are and will continue to be dedicated to reviewing all applications for tax exempt status. he will be in the hot seat on friday when he testifies here on capitol hill. >> all right. we'll be watching nancy cordes thank you. the obama administration faces another scandal. the soeshlgtassociated press says that there were secret phone records gathered. >> eric holder calls the revelation a massive and unprecedented intrusion. bob orr in washington. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, charlie, norah. how are you?
7:06 am
>> what's going on here? >> reporter: this appears to be an aggressive investigation aimed at finding out who inside the government leaked sensitive in some cases secret information to reporters at the associated press. the ap says the government came in scooped up phone records for 20 phone lines use bid report ss ss used by reporters and editors. the records cove a period from april to may 2012. the justice department won't say why it seized the records, but, remember, during that time period, ap reporters wrote a series of stories about the disruption of an al qaeda plot out of yemen to bomb a u.s.-bound airliner. >> this is unprecedented according to the ap and the government usually asks for cooperation from news organization. why so agress anythis case? >> you are right. normally, the government tries its best to negotiate for access to information about sources. usually media companies say no.
7:07 am
they resist and then the justice department, if it thinks it's serious enough and wants to force the issue, goes and gets subpoenas to forcibly obtain the record. no warning, no negotiations the government came in got the subpoenas, took the phone logs and notified the ap after the fact and they call this a "massive and unprecedented intrusion." bob orr, thank you. another issue dogging the white house this morning. that is the assault on the u.s. mission in benghazi. president obama is angrily responding to republican led hearings and called those efforts a side show driven by politics. >> if there was some effort on our part to try to downplay what had happened or tamp it down that would be a pretty odd thing that three days later, we end up putting out all the information, but, in fact has served as the basis for everybody recognizing
7:08 am
that this was a terrorist attack. >> congressman darrell issa chairs the committee on government oversight. >> good morning. unfortunately, you just heard the president's spin and in the worst way. what he said was this somehow was a partisan side show. last week on wednesday, we had three career state department officials, including the highest department in state department presence there. the acting ambassador gregory hicks, not a partisan. what he said he knew it was a terrorist attack from the get go. the now deceased ambassador said to him, his dying words if you will, last words heard by anyone in tripoli, greg we're under attack. and he communicated that in fact, it was a terrorist attack immediately to the operations center. so when they came clean, when the jig was up that's not the same as they didn't try a cover
7:09 am
up. >> congressman, respond specificly to the president of the united states who said how can it be a coverup when several days after susan rice on the sunday shows that he sent the head of the national counterterrorism center up to capitol hill and specifically said it was an act of terrorism and an extreme elements involved? >> what you say behind closed doors and what you say suddenly well in fact you're tellingfy sunday shows that this was spinning, that it was a video, the 12 changes that took a cia report from true to a lie to the american people. these are not things that any republican is making up. these are facts, the president know knows it, you know it. on "face the nation," you had the president of libya making very clear this was a premeditated premeditated, terrorist attack on september 11th and susan rice in a nondiplomatic way saying he didn't know what he was doing or lying and you wonder why it took
7:10 am
us three weeks for the fbi to get to benghazi when news reporters were able to walk all over the site. >> looking at the irs controversy developed and the president had strong words yesterday, what is necessary on your part for the administration to get to the bottom of it? you want to see people fired? an investigation? what do you want to see? >> first of all, how dare the administration imply they will get to the bottom of it. this was the targeting of the president's political enemies effectively and lies about it during the election year so it wasn't discovered until afterward. this is the kind of investigation that has to be open and transparent to the american people. today there are "tea party groups" that don't have their approval. this process was deliberate and repeated. fixed once out of washington went to cincinnati the national center for this, and turned around and did it another five
7:11 am
months. >> this was a per vaif policyvasive policy. congress has to hold people accountable. these were attacks ss whether done by partisan apintees spointies or not. our founding fathers wanted a small federal government. a level of accountable and the ways and means committee, who will have a great deal to say about law changes will probably have to make a realization that it is a semi independent agency with political appointee of the president or acting person who still serves at the pleasure of the president may, in fact not be the right organizational guarantees to tell the american people that they won't be targeted, whether they are on the left or the right. and lastly we only know that they targeted these groups because we asked for an ig report. that took almost a year and
7:12 am
when it was about to come out, the irs itself started playing spin, including this release, which may be illegal to release the way they did. >> congressman issa thank you so much. four u.s. soldiers killed in southern afghanistan in a convoy on patrol in kandahar when hit by a roadside bomb. so far this month, 12 international service members, including 8 americans, killed in afghanistan. angelina jolie announced that she had a double mastectomy. performed earlier this year. >> jolie went through the procedure to reduce her risk of cancer. ben tracy in los angeles. good morning. >> reporter: norah and charlie, good morning. angelina jolie says with a history of cancer in her family and a gene nowmutation double
7:13 am
mastectomy was the best choice. angelina jolie, one of the most famous women on the planet. fixture on the red carpet big screen and tabloid magazines. she has use thad to shed light on some of the more impoverished areas in the world. jolie describes her personal and courageous battle in the editorial pages of today's "the new york times." i made a decision to have a preventative double mastectomy. known for her beauty as well as acing, jolie says the decision to have a mastectomy was not easy. and one i'm very happy i made. she explains she carries a faulty gene, increasing her chances of breast cancer to 87%. with surgery, those odds drop to less than 5%. the other factor in jowllie's decision her mother's death from cancer in 2007. in an interview in 2011 jolie
7:14 am
opened up about the impact her mother had on her life. >> do you try to be the same kind of mom she was? >> i hadder in er inwill never be as good of a mother as she was. i will try. but she was just grace incarnate. the most generous love inging -- better than me. >> reporter: jolie seems prepared for the next stage. life comes with many challenges she writes. the ones that should not scare are the ones that we can take on and take control of. the medical procedures she underwent took three months and she finished them two weeks ago. she said theyshe did all of this for her family. >> brad pitt told the london evening standard having witnessed this decision first hand, i find angie's choice heroic. all i want for her is to have a
7:15 am
long and healthy life with myself and our children. this is a happy day for our family. and dr. david agus good morning to you. >> good morning, guys. >> for those not familiar brca 1, what is this faulty gene? >> a gene inherited to either child, boy or girl that dramatically raises the risk for breast cancer and ovarian cancer. >> when should someone get tested? >> there are no national standards on when you should be tested. but someone who has a first degree relative or two first degree relatives at a young age with breast cancer needs to be tested. the supreme court last month started to argue that companies charging $3,000 for the test. is it appropriate? a woman needs to know her genetics and the risk. the problem, much insurance
7:16 am
doesn't cover those who are moderate or lower risk and many people don't have insurance and they can't be tested. and prevent this horrible disease. >> what percentage of people have this faulty gene? >> 5% to 10% of people with breast cancer have brca 1 or brca 2. >> doctor, i have friends that have had test and you grapple with whether or not to have a double mastectomy what are the risks to having a double mastectomy, what are benefits? >> hey listen. no right answer on what to do. the real benefit is that you dramatically reduce risk of breast cancer. it doesn't go to zero. there is some breast tissue left. in the case of ms. jolie it goes from 80% range down to 5%. the risk is that it's major surgery and many people don't want that so there are pills that one can take that can dramatically reduce risk but it is taking a pill every day for the rest of your life and we
7:17 am
don't have real long-term data with these pills yet. >> and angelina jolie talked about the next step for her, which is an oophorectomy having offries ry ovaries removed. >> she has 50% chance of developing ovarian cancer. taking out the ovaries, a relatively simple surgery, but a big decision for a woman to make. >> thank you very much. after ten weeks of testimony, a philadelphia doctor found guilty of murder. 72-year-old kermit gosnell mounted guilty of three counts of first degree murder. found guilty of the death of three babies born alive at his abortion clinic. he could face the death penalty. prince harry's next stop new jersey. he will join governor chris christie for some of the areas crushed by superstorm sandy.

♪ good morning, gayle good morning, charlie. good morning, everybody. it is 8:00 a.m. in the west. and welcome back to "cbs this morning." angelina jolie reveals she had a double mastectomy. even though she doesn't have cancer. so we'll look at the genetic testing that drove her decision. the irs admits it targeted conservative groups. the head of the agency says we should have done a better job. and powerball keeps getting bigger now that california is part of the game. does that mean the lottery is a good bet for states and ticket buyers? melody hopkins has the answers. first here's a look at today's "eye opener at 8." >> lawmakers are furious, particularly republicans who repeatedly asked the irs about reports that tea party groups were being targeted and were always told it wasn't happening.
8:01 am
>> this was the targeting of the president's political enemies, effectively, and lies about it during the election year so that it wasn't discovered till afterwards. the a.p. says the government came in and scooped up phone records for 20 of its phone lines used by reporters and editors. angelina jolie says with a history of cancer in her family and an inherited gene mutation that a double mastectomy was her best choice. prince harry in seaside heights. this town among the hardest hit by superstorm sandy last october. there's been talk in the boston press was he shot by friendly fire? they don't know. in another way it doesn't really matter except that he's okay. we will never not enjoy a day. we'll never not enjoy a hug or a kiss. well, o.j. simpson is back in the news. o.j. went to court today, trying to get a new trial. show the picture of o.j. in court. look at o.j. huh? huh? his old nickname was the juice. now it's more like gravy.
8:02 am
i'm charlie rose with gayle king and norah o'donnell. angelina jolie's mother died of cancer when she was 56 years old. the oscar winner says she can now tell her children that will not happen to her. >> jolie revealed this morning that she had a double mastectomy to prevent getting breast cancer. dr. holly phillips is here. hello. >> good morning. >> she said that she had a faulty gene that raised her risk. what is that gene? and who should get tested for it? >> well, it's called brca 1. there are two forms, 1 and 2. and normal cells, they're actually called tumor suppresser genes, and they help to prevent the development of cancer. in people who have the mutation it actually raises their risk of developing both breast cancer and ovarian cancer. in angelina's case she said the doctors estimated her lifetime risk of getting breast cancer around 87%. >> people who get these testing usually have mothers who have died of breast cancer and their
8:03 am
sisters have died of breast cancer. is it possible there are other people who don't have family members who died of breast cancer who may carry this gene? >> absolutely. and frankly, not all of us know our family history. and many people don't know what caused someone to pass on. so we don't always know if our family has traits that can contribute, but some are at higher risk anyway. people of jewish descent are at higher risk as are people of scandinavian descent. but if you have a male relative with breast cancer one or two close female relatives with breast cancer, it's something you want to consider. >> i've heard many women say this is a commendable thing she's done going public with it. when i was younger i heard this story, i thought, no way would i ever do that. as you get older and hopefully wiser, you go sayonara let them go. as a doctor what do you make of what she's doing and what's your advice to patients? >> you know what? i think it's a very individual decision but i really commend angelina jolie. she's obviously somebody who
8:04 am
talks the talk but then walks the walk. you know, she really, iny think, just is making a difference just in terms of awareness of breast cancer by telling everyone what she went through. those are high numbers, an 87% lifetime risk. she's made the decision to be proactive and do a double mastectomy rather than reactive and treat it when she did it. >> where is the research in this going? >> you know, it's interesting. a double mastectomy isn't for everybody "a" who has the gene or "b" who is at high risk for breast cancer. so it's a very individual decision. there are no national guidelines on who should be tested for brca and no guidelines on what should be done. she could have waited and done surveillance and just gotten mammograms and mris. >> quickly, how expensive is this testing? >> that's what's very prohibitive. the test is extremely expensive, about $3,000 and actually just last month the supreme court started to consider whether or not the patents on the tests should be lifted to make it more
8:05 am
affordable for everyone. >> dr. holly phillips thanks. president obama is rejecting charges that his administration tried to cover up the benghazi terror attack. one of his leading critics in congress says this morning the white house is ignoring facts. chip reid is at the white house. chip, good morning. >> reporter: well, good morning, charlie, norah and gayle. there is little doubt that this benghazi story is really getting under the president's skin. here at the white house yesterday, he was perturbed. a lot of people in the white house believe what republicans are doing is trying to turn a tragedy into a political scandal, or as the president said, there's no there there. >> who executes some sort of cover-up or effort to tamp things down for three days? so the whole thing defies logic. and the fact that this keeps on getting churned out, frankly, has a lot to do with political motivations. >> reporter: but earlier this morning on "cbs this morning," congressman darrell issa who chairs the house oversight
8:06 am
committee said the white house is ignoring the fact. >> the 12 changes that took a cia report from true to a lie to the american people these are not things that any republican is making up. these are facts. the press knows it. you know it. >> reporter: issa says that what the white house was doing was trying to avoid calling this attack terrorism during the presidential campaign. a lot of democrats believe that what's really going on here is that republicans are trying to damage hillary clinton who was somewhat involved in this. republicans believe very much involved in this in the leadup to the 2016 presidential campaign. charlie, norah and gayle? >> chip, thank you. new evidence shows top irs officials repeatedly failed to tell congress that their agency was targeting tea party organizations. starting in 2011 three congressional committees asked at least eight times if those groups were being singled out. president obama said yesterday
8:07 am
he has no patience for any political activity at the agency. >> if you've got the irs operating in anything less than a neutral and nonpartisan way, then that is outrageous. it is contrary to our traditions. and people have to be held accountable, and it's got to be fixed. >> and this morning one former irs commissioner says the agency did absolutely the wrong thing. jan crawford is at irs headquarters in washington. jan, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, norah, charlie and gayle. i mean the irs is responsible for making sure the correct groups get tax-exempt status. but obviously here that went way wrong. there were no clear guidelines in place. they had this flood of applications. so to evaluate these groups what they do is develop a shortcut that only singled out the conservatives. >> president obama's agenda promised so much. >> reporter: the nonprofit group behind these ads spent more than $250 million last year on issues at the heart of the presidential
8:08 am
election. >> i know what it's like to worry whether you're going to get fired. >> reporter: now they're at the center of the current irs controversy. they are called 501c4s, and they run the gamut from big political organizations led by former bush adviser karl rove to volunteer fire departments and community festivals, all of which apply and qualify for tax-exempt status as social welfare organizations. >> this is an abuse -- a flagrant abuse of the tax code. >> reporter: some members of congress have been sounding the alarm on these political groups since 2010. that's when the supreme court decision, citizens united cleared the way for corporations to spend unlimited amounts of money on elections. some groups looking to take advantage of an influx of cash apply for special 501c4 status with the irs. applications more than doubled. >> there are a lot of applications coming in.
8:09 am
they need to be dealt with. >> reporter: this man served as irs commissioner from 2003 to 2007. >> clearly a group of people was doing absolutely the wrong thing. the irs needs to make sure if it is getting into sensitive areas, it needs to do so in an even-handed manner. >> reporter: this man has been pushing for more oversight of these groups on the right and the left and says washington has to share the blame for the current scandal. was congress just not doing enough and the irs not doing enough? >> there were some problems that were pretty easily identifiable that congress could have prevented. >> reporter: ryan also blames the irs for failing to issue clear guidelines on which groups qualify for the tax-exempt status. >> the grown-ups at the table did fail in a lot of ways. the grown-ups at the table need to put on their big boy pants, their big girl pants, and tackle these issues. >> reporter: now critics on both sides of the aisle, the left and the right, say a full investigation with hearings is needed to see the extent of
8:10 am
these abuses and how far up the chain of command they went. charlie? norah? gayle? health officials are getting worried that two new viruses could spread around the world. one is a new strain of bird flu in china. the other is spread from the middle east to france and britain. the viruses are blamed for at least 50 deaths. dr. william shafner of vanderbilt university is with us, former president of the national foundation for infectious diseases. dr. shafner, good morning. thank you for joining us today. i know it's early. >> good morning to you, gayle. >> it's good to see you. what are doctors most concerned about with these two viruses? >> well we're most concerned that these viruses might develop the capacity to be transmitted very readily from person to person. in which case we could have many outbreaks of disease around the world and perhaps even in the united states. >> we're talking about the corona virus, right, one that has spread from the middle east to europe. ning it in other places around the world?
8:11 am
>> well, at the moment, its heart is in the middle east but some people can travel from the middle east to other parts of the world, the united kingdom, france, and develop their illness in those locations. so all of us are alert to anyone traveling from the middle east or from china with the bird flu virus infection. if they come to the united states and get sick we'll jump on that, put them in isolation, get specimens, send those to the cdc for analysis. >> is it similar to sars? >> the corona virus is charlie, somewhat similar to sars but sars was very readily transmiscible. this virus does not have that genetic capacity to do so yet. and that's what we're worried about. >> all right. dr. shafner, thank you. last night night the robin hood foundation raised more than $80 million to fight poverty in new york city. more than 4,000 people attended the organization's 25th anniversary fund-raiser.

8:22 am
corporate tax level. just to give you an example of that, 11 states are taking in more revenue from lottery ticket sales than they are from corporate taxes. the state of rhode island alone, 36% of the revenues come from lottery ticket sales. >> some people argue that the problem with lotteries are that poor people buy these tickets and they can't afford them. >> that's right. it's a vicious circle here. lotteries hurt poor people. there's no question about it. the people who can least afford the tickets are the ones who buy the most tickets. if you look at people making $13,000 in income or less basically right on the poverty line, they spend 9% of their income on lottery tickets. $650 over the course of the year, which means they spend less on food and shelter and other bills they need to pay. >> everybody is dreaming. that slogan you can't win if you don't play. >> thank you. their lives were shattered shootings.

8:34 am
so to go back and get those questions that have been running through my mind every night for months an opportunity to get my head wrapped around that kind of stuff. emotionally, there is a price to pay for that too. >> definitely. there is a price to pay. >> there is. it was painful. it rips the scab open to go there and get that closure, and there was a recovery from that as well. >> you've mentioned there are really specific and in some cases simple fixes people can do to schools. can you give us the top few that come to mind. >> something as simple as the teacher being able to go and lock the door from the inside of the classroom would have made it exponentially difficult for him to do what he did in our daughter's classroom. >> as many ways as you can set up territorial boundary landscaping, lots of lighting
8:35 am
really thoughtful placement of shrubbery, sidewalks. as many cushions as you can come up with in the way of accessing the front door. how many levels are there. >> i feel like on top of that you think of what happens to you when you go into your child's school. is there anything to stop you from having access to those students. is there a barrier? is there a door that prevents you from accessing students. >> politics the gun control issue. do they have a place here? >> not at all. we really feel like this is something that ordinary folks do. it's in your own hands. for us this is where we saw very clearly early on that we could make a difference and legitimately makes the school safer. >> absolutely. and we feel like political debates are not a debate in this. >> from looking at all of you, it's clear to me that the doing is a part of the healing. what you're doing with this

8:37 am

have a chance to make sure our schools are safe when it opens in the fall. >> what are they going to do with the school the physical plan itself. >> that's interesting. as you know it's still being debated. i think the recommendation was made to close the school. it's interesting, the gays don't really have a stake in it they say. they have moved to massachusetts and were in the process of doing it during the shootings. the parkers said she would love to see it closed and have a memorial and a new school built. >> i thought the latest decision was to tear it down and rebuild something on the same site. >> they haven't completely concluded that. >> thank you

♪ ♪ have you heard about the new health craze ♪
8:42 am
♪ >> a lot of people going to veganville it seems these days. that was an hilarious skit. i remember that. >> you wouldn't think a firehouse would be place to vej out. several years ago rip esselstyn convinced his bodies to switch to a plant based diet. he's creator of the engine two diet diet. his new book is called "my beef with meat." good morning rip. what's wrong with meat? >> a number of things. it clogs arteries. it fuels cancer. it contributes to obeseity and it trashes the environment. there's a disconnect between what people think is healthy and what we know to be healthy. this book is basically the -- i want to set the record straight.
8:43 am
give people the answers, dispel the myths so they can own their health and stand up for their lifestyle. >> was it a tough sale at the engine company? >> these guys had seen me eatsing this way for eight years. we had a bet that led to a discovery that one of our own basically had one foot in the grave and so we as a group of firefighters started eating plant strong. that's the term i like to use. to set these guys on the road to ideal health. >> how long does it take to get into it? >> we started the next day. this was serious stuff. >> all i can say to you, rip, is you are taking away my happy. i'm a girl that craves a burger. i love a steak with sauce so tender you can cut with a fork. you say you're not having cravings for beef. i swear i do. you say, no.
8:44 am
it really isn't cravings. what is it you want people like me to know that are real beef eaters. what do you want us to know why a plant based diet is so much better. your book scared me by the way. >> i didn't mean to scare you. all i'm trying to do is educate you. most people don't know that chicken has the same amount of cholesterol as red meat and fish has more cholesterol than red meat and chicken and one egg yoke has the same amount of cholesterol as two burger wing whoppers and one glass of whole milk has same saturated fat as four slices of bacon and two times the calories. we're trying to educate people to make an informed decision about their most important asset, which is their health. >> you are a triathlete. you're a very good triathlete. how do you get enough protein to exercise and what are you eating? you have to eat a lot of what? >> he's got it all here. >> that's the first myth we dispel which is the whole
8:45 am
protein myth. plants are abundant in protein. the biggest land animals get protein from plants. broccoli, 35% protein. >> you have recipes and pictures are good. i'm wondering, is it an acquired taste or does it really taste good to you? >> the only reason i was able to get a bunch of texas male firefighters to eat this way is because it tasted fantastic, it filled them up and made them feel great and so if you can hit all of those marks, i mean you don't feel like you're deprived and you are taking care of your number one asset. >> are they staying on the diet? >> it rippled out throughout the firestations in austin texas, and in america. you would be amazed how many firefighters are now actually saying, hey, we want to get healthier. >> all right. rip, thank you very much. great to talk to you. and "my beef with meat" goes on sale today. get ready for another explosive

over was the work. that remains the same. it's a very strong core cast. great actors and they all love to work and want to be there and work hard at it and the crew and gary runs the show and we all do it together. that's really why. >> what's the appeal? the mystery of it all? >> i think it's the humor. seriously. there's a case. we don't always solve the case. it was always character strong and it had humor. and from the very very beginning, we had that and that's maintained and that's still what makes a difference. >> gibbs definition of character. >> it's earned. it's earned. which in the beginning because it was so hard to do this show i think we just got to know each other. we were fortunate. now we're able to tell back stories and our audience has stuck with that and grown. >> what have you learned about "ncis?" you have a consultant on the

8:52 am
there a lot the frogs? >> there are frogs everywhere. >> your son sometimes plays you, which i think is pretty cool in flashbacks. what's that like for the two of you on the set? >> i think they do a good job when he comes on the show. i'm glad he has an opportunity to be on this set. that's a gift. it's a very different set. he's done good work. i'm proud of him and what he's doing and what he's trying to do and he's 25 years old and trying to figure it out. >> we are thrilled that your show is such a hit and makes so much money for cbs. we love you. >> earlier i was thrilled to see and know that your father was the great heisman trophy winner. >> great dad. >> thank you mark. you can catch the "ncis" season finale tonight at 8:00 here on cbs. >> that does it for us. up next your local news. we'll see you tomorrow on "cbs this morning."
